“No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away…”(Reaper Man)
There are countless Terry Pratchett quotations that describe what such a huge swathe of the population are feeling now, that I can’t do them justice. But here’s one that stuck with me from the moment I read it. So much so that I wrote it on a spare violin rib. Another one from Reaper Man
“The span of someone’s life, they say, is only the core of their actual existence.”
RIP Sir Terry, the wonderful way you sent up the world in your books has provided a welcome breath of fresh air to us for so long. That fresh air will still be breathed for many many many years. Your existence will continue for a long while yet, I wager.
